My perfect trip in Rome thanks to this apartment

Hello, I have just returned from a week in Rome, staying in this apartment just off the Campo De Fiori. I am a woman in my 60's, travelling solo. This apartment was perfect. The location is the best in the city, with food, sites, grocery, multiple bus stops, taxi stand, Campo de Fiori, Plaza Navona, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, all within steps of the apartment.
Fabrizio and his sister Rosella did everything that they promised to make my trip hassle-free. Fabrizio arranged trips to/from the airport, provided a phone, internet, and access to either he or Rosella by phone for any questions or problems that I had. The internet was fast and reliable.
This apartment is in a very historic building at the Theater of Pompey. The apartment, on 3rd floor by winding stairs, is on a quiet street, and the bedroom is in the back of the apartment. The apartment is small but well-maintained, and it was handy to have a washer. But the best was having this quiet, clean and convenient haven from the bustle of the city.
The apartment is as described in the listing, the photos are accurate, and the property was clean. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Rome.
This apartment will work best for a couple, or no more than 4 guests. Anyone sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room will need to go through the bedroom to access the bath. I did not cook, but the kitchen is fully appointed. Also, one must be able to handle the steps, as there is no elevator.
Safety: This building is secure, and the apartment itself seals up like a safe. Plus, the neighborhood itself felt very safe at all hours.
Plus the sites listed above within walking distance (and there are many more), the bus system was easy to figure out, and busses ran frequently. The 116 is an electric bus which was very handy for visiting the Villa Borghese; the bus to the Vatican was just across the street, and the main artery with multiple busses going to the Coliseum/Forum is just around the corner. Get a Roma pass at the TI in Navona Plaza and buzz all around the city and see the sites for 30Euros, total, for 3 days of sites.
And when you need a siesta in the middle of the day, you are back at your quiet apartment in 10 minutes. Thanks you, Fabrizio and Rosella!
